What are some good collaborative sketching/drawing services or applications?
Personally I'm looking for something that'll work as a graphical version of google docs, similar to flockdraw or ziteboard with decent tools for sketching, support for text and large canvases, as well as the ability to embed pictures and possibly gifs, ideally free/open-source or self-hosted.
But feel free to share other related tools, anything you think is good.
the free ones i’ve used are Magma, Malmal/HelloPaint, and Drawpile. i believe they all allow public and private boards with varying graphic tools but Magma seems the most encompassing. if it’s for like corporate purposes there’s stuff like microsoft whiteboard as well
opencanvas if its still around

Just do it Anon, there is definitely a niche group of people who are still interested in this sort of stuff and the space could use more normal interesting people and less politically obsessed deranged motherfuckers.
My advice if you want to get started is to create something you're personally passionate about, don't aim for high traffic, and try to avoid making a personal website unless you like just writing into the void (the "my blog" kinda sites) as they very quickly burn people out and inevitably end up abandoned when people realise that they could have just posted it on Twitter with less effort and gotten more engagement.
If you have a hobby, collection, niche set of skills, or special autistic interest, make a site where you can talk all about it in all of the depth you want to, and you'll quickly find yourself engaged in creating something people actually give a shit about.
I had no idea people still gave a shit about my website, I usually hang out on /g/, but stumbled across this thread when Googling to see why I got a spike in traffic yesterday. I have a shit load of dead links to get through and I've honestly just lost a lot of motivation to keep going with the project, so I've kinda had to put it on the back burner for now. I'll get back to it sooner or later.

Hey anons, i have a selfish request. This is an exterior design of a house I plan to build.
Without changing the proportions too much is there any way you could make it look more cool and aesthetic?
Im not sure what but i feel like something is missing from it looking very cool, rich and futuristic.

I hope this is the place to ask.
Thanks in advance my Nwords

Is there an easy way to replicate the image degredation from repeatedly copying/faxing a document? Ideally this would be for PDF files, but any format would be better than nothing.

>downsizing would actually help you achieve degradation

>i guess i'm not really understanding what the issue is

No shit, it works in in exactly the opposite way; reducing the size of an image is how line art and other images are cleaned up and an integral part of the process of creating art for print media back in the day.

Easiest way to imitate copy/fax machine degradation digitally is to mess with light values, contrast, exposure, etc , since most photocopying artifacts and distortions are the result of the actual photographic part of the process and strong light was what allowed them to reject all but text and other deliberate markings....every generation was slightly overexposed and the contrast boosted so details like fine lines, dots and sharp corners would gradually melt away.
At the same time, if you adjusted the machine darker to pickup those details any small dark areas, erased pencil lines and even the shadows of paper texture would get reproduced, and subsequent attempts to lighten them back out by re- copying with higher contrast wouldn't get all of them, leaving characteristic splotchiness.
each time the ink prints it’s not a digital process nor is the scanning it’s analog to digital in the scan and digital to analog in the printing
so you would find the physics of the scanning process then simulate it and same for the printing, simulate the analog printing
with those 2 filters it’s an iterative process for each and the number of iterations increases the effect of scanning then printing, taking the output and repeating the process

That’s how you would make an accurate fx or plugin or whatever but you can just jank it using photoshit
Try the app "LOWER" w the yellow icon :P
Just to be clear, xerography is not an inherently digital process and doesn't use ink...it uses an electrically charged drum or belt to selectively attract a dry powder toner to desired print areas, that is then thermally fused to the paper printing substrate.

It's more analogous to how powder coating works than printing and the less than precise nature of how it translates the source image to a static charge as well as the resolution available with the mechanical properties of the toner are part of what gives it its characteristic look and generational loss of detail and artifacting.

The fact that xerography *isn't* digital is part of why it can be difficult to replicate convincingly using digital technology and digitally created files that tend to pixelate and show other obviously digital artifacts when deliberately degraded in a digital process.

Morę or less the latter. They are a bit similar to Royal Monograms and to signatures. A styilised set of words. And that nine fold script has been chosen because it's easier to carve out a rectangular symbol.

Like >>451571 said, 2 and 3 need to be swapped.
Early Windows had brighter colors because the color palette was more limited on some PCs. The more pastel colors came with 98 and Me, when SVGA 24-bit color was the norm.
7 > XP > Vista > 95 > 10 > 11
win 7 classic had nice click sounds, didn't ship with dwm enabled and felt very snappy
it was also simplistic and not overloaded with poorly functioning features, so it was better for workflow than 10/11
obviously nothing beats macosx 10.6-10.7
that was just and orgasmic beauty of ui/ux
This was true minimalism, succeeds at being visually appealing and not too distracting.

Flatshitters today would never achieve doing something like this, as much as they try.

no, 4chan actually has gradients copyrighted
And what if I slightly change the colors of the gradient ?
no, 4chan actually has gradients with slightly changed colors copyrighted
That's what we call a human color. Only the Jews are permitted to have this tone mark their bodies. We're in hell.

not sure how well it'd work but couldn't you use layered shattered glass/crumpled paper textures of differing opacity? it looks like it's just a bunch of random geometric shapes layered to look more complicated than they really are.
this is my absolute favorite cover from them, wishing they could pull something like this again
Thats bullshit! look at this artpiece i found, believe it or not this is from 2019, at first glance this looks like something out of the early 2000s, so its absolutely possible to replicate it but you have a good point even if its not 100% accurate to the aesthetics of the 2000s it would be 100 times better as long as corporate memphis fucking dies
